But, then I paused and wondered (again) what actually would press the cult ejector button for Cruise, Travolta and Allay?
Drawing from experience and widely available history on the COS and many other cults, you actually put your finger right on the button.
When a cult member is attacked by their own cult (using the identical attach tech that the cult member has joyfully applied to others) then they are stopped in their tracks and typically cognite in a few minutes: "Fuck that shit!"
It's what blew Marty out of the cockpit. When he and his friends were beaten up.
It's what blew Lisa Marie out. When her "BFFs" were revealed to be cult handlers manipulating her every move.
It's what blew all those other elite-SO-turned-autobiographers out of Int Base (Marc Headley, Debbie Cook, Amy Scobee, Nancy Many, Jeff Hawkins, et al)
It's the same lesson that every crush-regged, fair-gamed, disconnected Scientologist learns just before they blow out of sheer self-preservation; that the tech eventually destroys everyone from the bottom to the very top of L. Ron Hubbard's food chain, himself included. It's a pervasively destructive, cannibalizing cult that sucks the life out of everything and everyone within its gravitational orbit.
Just to be clear, let's use another example for a moment. How did the largest MAFIA collapse in history occur? It was caused by the same phenomenon--a high ranking mafia member learning of "senior management's" (i.e. John Gotti) trashing them and plotting their demise. In Gotti's case, the FBI had obtained hundreds of hours of surveillance audio which they were not shy about playing for Mafia thug #2, Sammy "The Bull" Gravano who was the underboss to Gotti and his closest friend. When Sammy heard (and realized) that he was no exception to the list of people the boss despised and likely would soon whack out, he did the unforgivable, turning states witness. And he literally knew where all the bodies were buried, having carried out a couple dozen murders himself at the behest of the mob's or his own money-centric crime rackets.
If Travolta or Cruise heard or saw videotape of Miscavige reading their pc folder aloud, laughing and "degrading" them to other Sea Org members, they might pack up and head over the psychologically inward facing barbs surrounding Scientology celebs. I cannot believe the reason they stay is other than the abject terror they contemplate when considering what kind of damage Miscavige can do to their careers, reputations and life if he leaks their session withholds. I honestly think it's that simple and their cognitive dissonance kicks into a hyper-gear to prevent even thinking about that.
If you have had one marriage ruined by your 3rd dynamic group forfeit 1
If you have had two marriages ruined by your 3rd dynamic group forfeit 2.5
If you have had three marriages ruined by your 3rd dynamic group forfeit 4
If you are a celebrity and the above has happened with a global audience, forfeit an extra 6
If you feel you are the victim of mass media character assassination, because of your 3rd dynamic affiliations and experiences, forfeit 10
If you have been accused, in the media, of supporting slavery, forfeit 8
If you have been accused in the media of supporting fraud forfeit 8
If you have been mocked in the global media in connection with your defence and support of your 3rd dynamic forfeit 9
If you have been mocked for over 3 years forfeit 10
This is only a bit of the list. But near the end it gets to:
If you KNOW that David Miscavige has used your pc files to have a larf with his mates and you are still in that cult, THEY CAN HAVE YOU.
